While I like that plan, there are a LOT more people who will scream about not being "protected" than those who will 
bitch they can't get to a phishing site.

Since networks are for-profit companies, they'll lower their costs (e.g. support calls), as long as it lowers their 
cost more than the "cost" of losing a customer or two (and let's be honest, that is about all they _might_ lose) who 
are religious about the whole "transit means everywhere" thing.
